Steeringwheel Upgrade-help!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I need some help...

I'm trying to upgrade from leather steeringwheel to Wood steeringwheel for my 99 GS300.

I bought a wood steeringwheel & airbag that came off of 04 GS430 but the airbag plugs don't match. I thought this was just going to be a straight upgrade but guess I was wrong...

Has anyone done this?

Do I need some kind of an adapter plug for the newer airbag?

If anyone can let me know how I can make it work, I'd really appreciate it.

The airbags are not compatible. The 98-00 airbags are single-stage while the 01+ are dual-stage. As you have found out, they also have different plugs. The only airbag that has been confirmed to work for your situation is an 2001 RX300 airbag. This airbag has the new shape while still being a single-stage airbag (and connector).
